Let's hear it for PWC: (registration required)
AP WorldStream English (all) via NewsEdge Corporation : UNITED NATIONS_In an unusual move, the United Nations said it will use an outside firm of accountants to help track the billions of dollars pledged to help the victims of the tsunami in the Indian Ocean.
Price-Waterhouse-Coopers has offered its services on a pro bono, or no fee, basis to the United Nations to help create a financial tracking system, Kevin Kennedy, a senior official in the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said Monday.
On a related note, there's an accompanying statement from the same UN spokesman that this has nothing to do with the lately revealed financial incompetence and thievery at the UN. Nothing to see here; move along.
I've got to give it up for PWC though. With them providing free services to monitor the money, there's at least a chance the funds may actually be used to help the victims.
